The Academy is the Australian member of the International Council for Science (ICSU), a non-government organisation with a global membership of al scientific unions, interdisciplinary science bodies and 120 national scientific bodies representing 140 countries.
The ICSU and the International Social Science Council (ISSC) will merge in July to create a unified, international organisation, the International Science Council, whose vision will be to advance all sciences as a global public good.
In May, the Academy hosted a meeting of Australians who are active in the ICSU and its member organisations. The meeting provided an opportunity to discuss the upcoming inaugural General Assembly of the new International Science Council and how Australia can better coordinate its international engagement in this and related bodies.

We’ll publish more information about the merger as it becomes available.
